What to do in between heats in Australia??? Well if you are Balaram Stack you go and boardslide a 9 stair rail, nail it, and high five your friends. Most surf cats couldn’t even ollie the set while Balaram handles it in two tries.
We recently added Dax and Finn McGill to the Sector 9 family. These two are full on surf-skaters, and growing up on the North Shore you can bet we will see many more great things from them. Big welcome to the whole McGill family!
As surf tourism makes its way into new communities around the world, it brings about social change that can be positive if managed correctly. Kyle Thiermann of Surfing for Change made it a personal mission to go to Nicaragua and investigate exactly this.
The Guajataka Downhill race just went down in Puerto Rico and the Sector 9 Downhill Division crushed it!! Victor got onto a plane for the first time and was happy to skate with the locals... Enjoy some Quick Clips as they session the slide jam and battle through the crowded corners of the Guajataka Downhill Race.
Shaun Ross, Danny Tumia, and Tyler Martin, recently took a trip to skate with Hawaii local Billy Fortier. The boys were frothing and got straight into a session off the plane. Street spots, demos, and private bowls... nothing was left unskated.
Why is it that 14 year old aspiring professional surfers have more stamps in their passports than we do? In with the new, I guess. Regardless we are very stoked to see Ryland shredding up Nicaragua and hope he takes us with him next time!
